        you have to understand that it's an s10 but with a tin breadbox and 300k was a very easy thing for 90s pickup trucks to do.
        it's not a magic "long lasting vehicle" it's just a ladder frame leaf sprung straight axel with independant twin a-arm front suspension and a dinky little 4cylinder.

        I’ve never had a single car I’ve owned fail catastrophically before 300k, only after
        I’ve had like 20 cars
        In fact the only cars that have were Toyotas and it was head gaskets

      if you just show up with a tow rig and a flatbed trailer to your local post office you could probably load two of them and leave and attract no suspicion as long as you walk around with a notepad in your hand,
      I see them getting loaded up and shipped off all the time, probably for scrap.

      By being replaced when they wear out. Not fricking hard since small and light. When people see old vehicles they assume everything beneath the sheet metal is also old. Those trucks will have had at least one front suspension wear parts swap and brakes of course. Still cheap tho.

      ^This. Outside the Rust Belt there's little reason any truck couldn't do over 300K. Mine are all well over 200 and my mystery parts built from bits K1500 is well over 300K.

      AFAIK Jasper is out of the game, the entire fleet is being kept alive by cannibalization at this point. The reign of the LLV is nearing the end

      That makes no sense because there are plenty of rebuilders and any local auto machine shop can do the engines while any local transmission shop can do the gearboxes. Nothing in that driveline should be remotely difficult to source since it's S10 parts.

      I'm convinced it's political nepotism since the price per unit is ridiculous and the production went to a military contractor

      For something kept for decades and designed with MODERN package loads in mind it's an upgrade. Military vehicles are designed with overhaul in mind so service life extension is easy.

      I think the iron duke also had a gear driven cam like the ford 300. It was very low maintenance, basic, engine.tbi injectors never stop working, they just piss fuel instead of spraying it. Turbo 200c very basic too, aluminum body very light, generally under gvwr fully loaded. Fleet maintenance helps too. 300k is nothing for parcel vans, lots of E150s and chevy panel vans exceeding 500k too. Fleet maintenance, not stacy in 70k credit card debt maintenance. Simple as.

    they don't last 300k most don't even have 200k on them yet. engines last 80k at best in USPS service, most are on their third or fourth engine and third or fourth transmission. they used to put new aftermarket frames under these when they would rust out, but they quit doing that years ago so now all the llvs with original frames are rusting out and getting scrapped. they're still putting engines, transmissions, and axles in them though. i guess jasper has a special rebuild facility just for iron dukes and non-electronic 4l60 and whatever hydramatic 3 speed the early trucks had just because the USPS keeps dumping money into these shitbuckets.

      A local shop I know of has been rewelding the frames of the nearby post office's trucks. They refuse to get the new trucks, but the manager of the shop was b***hing about how much welding he was doing, basically building a new chunk of the frame.

      USPS could potentially benefit from hybridization since their driving patterns are pretty close to taxi service, but mailmen are very harsh on their trucks so they just don't last that long in general.

      Those LLVs also didn't have great fuel economy either, so they could literally swap to custom Chevy Express 3500 box vans without AFM and still make it out cheaper, and carry more cargo.

    No they the frick can't. Ask anyone who actually drives these types of vans. Turns out shit made by the lowest bidder isn't very high quality. Sure, the odometer might get to 300k before they finally scrap it, but it'll go through 3 engines and 7 transmissions to get there.

    I've always wanted to get one of these, turn into a beach cruiser. Hear me out, this is awful but let's go anyway.

    Chop roof off totally, keep the back pillars and run cross bar, use to hold surf boards, back instead of rack for mail, benches on both sides with ice boxes under them for snacks and drinks.

    Wild bright paint, tires to do sand, just something to drive a block or two from beach house to beach.
